Who paid you?  :-)

Some Harvard libraries are not part of the Harvard College set, such
as Law, Business, Medicine, Education.  (Borrowing privileges at
Windener, at least for alumni of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, do
not automatically extend to these.)  Although I don't know whether
these make the "Harvard University Library" any more
content-full.  Next time I'm at one of these, I'll look to see how
the books are stamped.
